Prep Everything the Night Before

Instead of waiting to cook everything the day of Thanksgiving or Christmas, I actually do a lot of prepping the week before. Anything I can do before the big meal gets done! Of course, I do most of the major cooking but the major prep can always be done before.

Make a List

One of my major secrets for helping the holidays go smoothly is to make a list whenever I can. I try not to make the lists too elaborate but lists really do help me stay on track ad focused.
